Bluewater Destinations: Ep5 - Australia and West Timor
EPISODE 5: Australia to West Timor, Indonesia
A film by British Sailor, TV director, and circumnavigator, Michael Briant. From his six-part series.
Michael Briant sails into Sydney harbour, probably the nicest large city south of the equator, and full of life and fun. Then, sail with him as he cruises northwards along Australia's challenging east coast. Michael escapes tragedy in a gale while watching other cruising sailboats wreck on a reef and their crews rescued by helicopter.
Continue northward through the interesting and beautiful islands of the Great Barrier Reef and on to Darwin, an excellent last stop for cruising boats heading out to Indonesia. Finally, enjoy a calm and smooth passage to West Timor accompanied by dolphins and light winds. On arrival, experience a real culture shock as Michael explores street markets and villages that have not changed for a thousand years.
